About me

Welcome to my Web page. I am chief of the Allergy Department at Kaiser Permanente San Diego Medical Center.

Biography

I grew up in Des Moines, Iowa, and then spent 11 years in Chicago for college, medical school and postgraduate training. I came to San Diego to fulfill a military commitment in 1975 and joined the Allergy Department at Kaiser Permanente San Diego Medical Center in 1977. I decided I wanted to be a doctor in the fourth grade. Although I don't exactly remember why I came to that conclusion then, I think I continued wanting to become a doctor because I thought it would be a wonderful way to use science to help people. My wife and I met during our first year in college and celebrated our 40th anniversary in 2007. We have one son, born here at Kaiser Permanente, who is now in his third year of psychiatry residency at Stanford University.

About my practice

I very much like taking care of patients who have asthma and allergies because I can usually make a big difference in their quality of life. We have a wonderful allergy department here, which I believe provides high quality, personal and compassionate care and service. Our department has also been involved in clinical research for nearly 30 years, which I think helps us stay up to date and provide cutting-edge care while we advance general knowledge in our field. I went back to school and received a master's degree in epidemiology from Harvard in 2001, which has helped me be a better clinical researcher. I have also been active in our national professional association, the American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology, and served as national President from 2004 to 2005. My main goal in my clinical work, my clinical research work and my professional association work is to improve the health and lives of patients with asthma and allergic diseases.

How I thrive

I have had a weight problem all my life. I lost 50 pounds through the Kaiser Permanente Optifast® program and work hard to maintain most of that weight loss. I exercise on the elliptical trainer 45 minutes every day. I try to eat a diet high in fruits and vegetables and low in red meat, but I can't seem to give up my bread products. I would definitely consider myself a workaholic (my wife would certainly agree), but I have fulfilling work, which helps me thrive in mind and spirit.
